??? wash cycle is not suppose to spin only agitate, most machine have a dual motor function, motor runs in 1 direction for wash then in another direction for spin. do u mean it does not go into spin? if so need to check the tranny and the clutch, the motor coupler in some cases and if its not agitating washing may have bad cam dogs in agitator, or bad water pressure switch, some times a bad door switch will not allow spin or agitation?
Does your motor sound like it is running in the agitate or spin cycle or is it quite?
If the motor makes no sound, then you need to replace the lid switch with this part.
If you hear the motor running in the agitate or spin cycle but you don't see any action, then replace the motor coupler with this part.
if it is syphoning......pull the drain house out of the stand pipe it is in tooooooo far. once it is too far down it does not have an air gap anymore which causes it to fill and drain and never reach maximum water level. the hose should only be in the stand pipe 6 inches. when you pull the hose out of the wall and you hear it go glub glub glub and water exits the hose that is a major sign of syphoning. And yes it can be intermitten. Let me know how it goes and if you have any other questions.
There are several causes for this problem. Check these.
No spin at all: the lid switch is fried. You test it with your meter. There will be a motor which spins the washing machine's drum. If you don't hear the motor running, then its the lid switch which would have been broken and needs replacing. A bad lid switch wil interrupt the spin cycle.
In the Whirlpool washers, a common problem is that the lid plunger stops making contact with the lid switch. Use a pen to manually press the lid switch actuator (with the lid up, duh). If the washer spins...well, you know the rest.
Older (belt-drive) Whirlpool: the spin solenoid is burned out or has cut wires. Ohm out that solenoid (20-30 ohms) and test with a test cord. Make sure the wires are intact by giving them a little tug. If this is OK, you may need to adjust/replace the basket drive.
Timer is fried. On older timers, it's sometimes possible to run an external jumper to replace the bad internal contacts. Usually, however, the entire timer must be replaced. The only way to confirm is to use your meter and wiring diagram.
